I find myself here on my knees again, caught up in grace like an avalanche, nothing compares to this love, love love, burning in my heart.
Jesus, How I adore You.
- Like an Avalanche - Hillsong
To everyone considering self-harm or suicide,
Please stop. Don’t cut, don’t harm. You are more loved than you could ever know, and there are people who would hate to lose you. You make a difference in this world, and in the lives of people. Your friends and family treasure you, your personality and the light you bring to their life. Someone is either in love with you right now, or will love you one day. You mean so much to the people that God has placed in your life. You are a beautiful and important person. Your situation doesn’t define you, and your struggle won’t last forever. “Sorrow may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” You are stronger than you think and things will get better. You have so much potential and so much joy to bring to others.
Most of all, you have an incredible God who loves you so incredibly much that he sent his only son to die for you. He knows your heart, and your struggles and is working for your good, even in your darkest moments. “For we know that in ALL things, God works for the good of those who love Him.” No matter how dark or impossible things seem now, they will get better. You can get through this, and if you do it with God, then He will give you peace, and your faith will grow through it. God loves you so much, and it says in psalms that “God is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” “Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” “Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.”
Gods word is full of his promises and his love for you. He has placed people in your life who love you more than words can express. You are so loved, and treasured. So many lives would be worse off, if you weren’t in them.
You are loved.
